The WSAB Transit Corridor Project’s development process is well defined by federal requirements stipulated in the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and state environmental requirements stipulated in the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The flow chart below highlights the major milestones in the process from beginning to end. The project is currently in the Draft EIS/EIR study phase.
The issues identified in the Technical Refinement Study (TRS) and refined in the Northern Alignment Options Screening Report will be further analyzed, mitigation measures identified, and community input gathered, incorporated and used to select a Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA). During the environmental process, public scoping meetings and hearings will take place along the corridor to engage the community, solicit input and address questions.
